Praise for this book

'Lyrical, funny and elegantly illustrated, it's ideal to reread.' NEW STATESMAN

'If ever there was an invitation to look anew at the natural world, then Antoinette Portis' sequence of lyrical riddles offers just that... Every riddle asks readers and listeners to embrace the great outdoors, to re-experience the familiar with all their senses alert and with a willingness to allow each encounter with nature to reveal unexpected riches.' BOOKS FOR KEEPS

'Aimed at children up to age seven, it will engage even the youngest child. The text is lyrical and poetic; the illustrations are a beautiful mixture of ink, stamps, leaf prints, charcoal, and brushwork, all rendered in a range of earthy tones... Portis reminds us that nature is not for passive viewing. It is to be enjoyed and cherished.'JUST IMAGINE
